The objective of this experiment is to distinguish sample groups according to their enrichment for a genomic mark on my six target genes. This genes are located next to each other on the studied genome. Previous results of Chip-array indicates a very similar enrichment of this 6 target genes for this genomic mark on the same individual. This enrichment can be strong or weak, and few intermediate results are found. So I try to recover similar results using ChIP-Chip experiment. So I have just one condition/treatment, and two controls in addition to this 6 target genes, a positive and a negative control. For the concentration factor between IP and Input, it concerned extracted material. IP and Input samples have undergone same experimental steps, except imunoprecipitation step for Input. Input correspond to the total DNA extracted material, and IP correspond to the results of immunoprecipitation of the same DNA against my genomic mark. > > So finally I have 2 Ct value for each genes, Input and IP value, and this > > value don't correspond of the same concentration.

The first data treatment consisted in transformation of Ct values of Input and IP into a unique enrichment value, using following calculation : 2 ^ ( mean(Ct_input) - mean(Ct_IP) ) * 100/dilution_Factor here dilution_Factor = 50 So my dataset is composed of, for each sample, one enrichment value by target genes. This is this dataset I used whith HTqPCR. So I want to compare global enrichment for my genomic mark on my target genes and to cluterised my sample according to this enrichment values. I test HTqPCR for a preliminary analysis whith this data, and I have an other question for the clusters manipulation. In a first time I use plotCtHeatmap() in order to have a representation of the clustering result : >plotCtHeatmap(data, gene.names="", dist="euclidean") So at this step, I want to extract the different samples cluster, but it is not possible with this function. This work can be done by the clusterCt function : >clusterCt(, type="samples", dist="euclidean", n.cluster=...) but I can't see the heatmap corresponding to this clustering, and the clustering using plotCtHeatmap() and clusterCt(type="samples") are not the same (because plotCtHeatmap make clusters by samples and features I think). There is a solution for visualize the heatmap like plotCtHeatmap() and recover cluster lists like clusterCt() ?
